Selena Gomez Reveals The Roles She Really Wants To Be Part Of

Selena Gomez has played a ton of characters — there was a sarcastic wizard, a tomboy who became BFFs with a princess, a midwestern girl who took the place of a socialite…but the roles she really wants to take on are far from that.

“I could do any tomboy/teen princess movie in the world if I wanted to,” she tells the NY Times. “I could do those for years.”

But those aren’t the roles she’s after: “I want to be a part of projects that have value, that really matter. And it’s really hard to do that. Sometimes I feel defeated.

“I’ll audition for a part that I feel very passionate about, meet with people, tell them I’m willing to go places. I think they think I won’t go there.”

Selena adds, “I don’t think it’s going to happen anytime soon for me. I think I look really young and image-wise, it’s difficult for people to grasp [that I want hefty parts]. But early on, my mom taught me that sometimes you just have to create those projects for yourself. That’s what I want this [13 Reasons Why] to be: a launching pad.”
